  1. Walking the track this morning, Thursday 6th at the Shelly Beach end heard screaching in the bush, looked up and observed for 5 minutes a North Island Kaka picking at a dead branch obviously looking for a fed of huhu bugs etc. Sightings of the Kaka uncommon in Auckland, great to see one at the Mangemangeroa Gorge, hopefully it will stay and multiply.

  2. I am a regular user of the Mangemangeroa Valley Walkway with a casual interest in fungi.

    I have accumulated quite a number of images of fungi from this reserve. For your interest these have been loaded on the “NatureWatch NZ” website and to assist others in accessing these I have created a project titled “Observations of Fungi in the Mangemangeroa Reserve”. It is not a true project but it is the only way I could collate them together for easy access. If you go to the NatureWatch website http://naturewatch.org.nz/ and select “Projects” and then type in the keyword “Mangemangeroa” and search you should be able to see all of my entries.

    I have also collated these images into a hardcopy “booklet” with a few notes on fungi through the seasons in the Mangemangeroa Reserve. I am trying to wind down my interests in fungi, but I would love to forward this booket to your group if you could supply me with a postal address where I could send this to. I am not on facebook so it would be helpful if you could reply to my email address.

  3. Hi,

    my name is Andrew Swales, an estuarine scientist at NIWA Hamilton. I am undertaking some research on the Mangemangeroa and I’m very interested in the Cheeseman extract on your website. Do you have a copy of the original document and/or a full reference to it that I could have.

    many thanks – Andrew

  4. My wife Gallagher and I are long time Howick residents. For the last couple of years we have been involved with a project to build a solar powered floating education laboratory. Is there a possibility that our boat could be part of your Ecological Educational Centre? You can see what we have been up to by looking here: http://espcatblog.wordpress.com/
